2. probes for my video card, correctly identifies it as a 3d ati rage card.
3. probes for my monitor (A Nokia 449M), fails with "unable to probe".
4. probes for my mouse, correctly identifying it (its a standard 3d buton ps/2
4. booom.. fails with a python stacktrace. From what I recall it says
that None doesnt subbort the height property.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:

2. Choose install from harddisk
Actual Results: Install fails as described above
RH 7.2/7.1 installs perfectly on the same machine.
I have not yet tried installing TH 7.3 from CDROM.
Were you given the option to safe the traceback to floppy? We really need it to
diagnose this issue further.
Ok, here is the traceback, I probably mixed up some upper/lowercase and

Missed thisone. No, I were not given that option, I wrote the traceback I
of the screen.
Could you please mediacheck the ISO images - instructions are at:
(it works for HD ISO installs as well as CD installs)
I have exactly the same problem, same messages appearing. However, when I
type 'linux mediacheck' it doesn't appear to make a difference, it doesn't ask
me any questions apart from what language I want, what keyboard layout and
where the .iso files are. What am I doing wrong?
Good to hear the graphical install worked. Sounds like a bad ISO set to get the
error you were seeing.
